    Hey

    Just thought I would post up a new set of pics of my car after a quick claying and polish..

    I had a set of Yoko's fitted yesterday, 225/40/18's so that I could lower my car as much as I wanted, really pleased with the results..

    Also I have the Lamin-X fronts and facelift rear lights installed with silver indicators..

    Just waiting for the Chrome mirror DRL's and PIAA sidelights and the exterior is getting close to as I want it to be..

    Still thinking of quite a few more bits, I like the facelift look but that would be a couple of grand..

    Anyways here you are :)

    On a side note, the RS/S kit is still running perfectly, still feels quick which is a bonus as im usually completely bored with a cars performance after a couple of hours driving..

    Any suggestions for anything more on the exterior?? I certainly dont want to do things for the sake of it, just feels like there is something missing..

    Let me know what you guys think!

    Jonny :)

    To be honest with you mate I'm not sure you should do to much more - it's a fine line between pretty much perfect, to going a bit OTT.
    I know you love to spend money on your car ( :) ) and if it was my cash I'd go for big brake conversion as they will finish off the overall look as well as give you that performance gain.
    Only other thought was maybe to have the audi rings on the tailgate in black... not sure you need to do anything else... bar maybe a change of alloys, but I think you'd be doing that just for a change of look than any other reason as the wheels you have suit it.

    Stunning!
    If it were me, I'd blacken the roof and spoiler and slap on the facelift rear diffuser (minor difference but i think it looks a tad more aggressive)

    Looks great, as said I'd consider the big brake conversion and maybe some mower blades mounted under the front spoiler to cur the grass ;)

    Job well done ....... btw, whats the waiting list like for taking folk for a spin :)

    Looks schweet Jonny.

    I'd be tempted to remove the rear rings, having seen it on Jordans car can safely say it looks the bizzle.

    The only reason i havnt done it to mine is I cant afford to mod the car (warranty) so just to remove the rings on an otherwise OEM car would look pap, but on yours I reckon would look noooice :)

    I went for the Yokohama Parada Spec 2's.. very good actually.. Look nice too!

    Cant decide what to do with the badges, I was considering getting the S3 badge put back on really.. Its more of an OEM+ look than Jordans car, not sure really, think I would have to see Jordans in person to make my mind up!

    How about remove the rings and put the s3 badge back?

    Without the rings the car looks to have a wider stance, like you said though, you need to see it :) *queue fotochoppers!*

    Very, very nice Johnny. I'd only remove the rear rings. The rest is spot on.

    had parada's on my ctr, good tyres but make sure they are always well inflated and above the recomendations otherwise they arent great and watch the edges as they wear pretty fast.
